instead of raising taxes, we ought to fix our 72,000 page monstrosity of a tax code, so we can keep jobs here and bring jobs home that have gone overseas. we should repeal the president's health care law, which makes it harder for small businesses to hire. and replace it with reforms that actually the work costs and protect the doctor-patient -- lowers costs and protects the doctor-patient relationship. and instead of getting into high gas and energy prices, let's jump start the development of america's vast domestic energy resources. let's build the keystone pipeline. let's expand the exploration and use of natural gas and coal. these are all good ideas that mitt romney supports. the president obama has ignored or rejected. that is disappointing, especially considering how his policies have failed. he promised to listen. he promised us change. but all we have got is more of the same. more spending, more red tape, more debt and decline. a loss of hope. the united states senate, run by the president's party, has not passed a budget in more than 3.5 years. that is irresponsible. and reckle

best way to do that is to reduce the employer's side of the payroll tax. for new job hires. in fact, they did go to a version of that. and but that's an example. the president has other proposals for credits, for particular kinds of businesses to create jobs, a new deduction of salary costs for new hires. or increases in pay. you know, i don't know that the particular designs of these policies from my perspective are ideal. i do know that that's speaking about the problem and saying hey we've got a real problem with job creation. the economy on its own is not doing this for some reason. we will eventually figure out the underlying reason. in the meantime, how do we stimulate it? look, there are other -- i've had this -- at the job summit i had a discussion with alan blinder an old friend of mine. he had a different approach. he said public jobs. public works. 1930s. i don't think we're there yet. i don't think we could ever do it. but we would certainly could -- can justify, and indeed there is a demand for an increased investment in infrastructure across the country. and they creat

obama explaining, have obama try to defend of tax -- fend off attacks. if this race gets turned around, that is when the momentum stops. the key is to stay on the offensive. i think it is highly likely that he can do that. he is the incumbent president because there's a lot more to attack. and there are things happening within his own administration. you saw the e-mails today on an ghazi. -- on benghazi. the aggressive and drive it home, and then ultimately, it is all about turn out an enterprising -- energizing your base. the more you can keep the president on the defensive and look aggressive, if you energize your basic mdot the other thing is that -- you energize your base, and the other thing is that you influence these other voters based on how they feel about things. coming down the stretch, if it feels like mitt romney has the momentum and the aggression, then it swings things that way. if they are not for him out, they probably will not be. they may not vote. but if ron makenna showed that energy -- romney can show that energy and keep this going, that i think it could b
